How do you get these insects to stay still long enough to photograph them, Superglue? Smile
Great shot.

Hi Andy
This is a fine capture and I can really appreciate the patience and effort taken to follow a common blue and then finally capture him on a flowering grass head with such sharp details.
The only point I would make is the noise in the background greens which you can easily remove with a program called neat image (just google neat image and select the free download which will work with pixel dimensions up to 800 at the longest length and then you can pay for the full version which does all pixel sizes)
All the Best
Paul

Beautifully captured. Nearly looks like a painting. Excellent work.

Thanks for your comment on the Scarlet robins. I was very lucky and the weather was against me.
